As anyone who’s been put in such a situation knows, it’s difficult to serve more than one boss. That’s why a proposal to create a manager or administrator position for Pueblo County government makes a lot of sense.
County Commission Chairman Garrison Ortiz discussed the idea with this editorial board last week. He pointed out that most of Colorado’s larger counties have someone who serves as a manager or administrator. That’s also true of many smaller counties, too.
It’s much more efficient for a government entity, or almost any large organization, to have someone near the top of the flowchart to oversee day-to-day decisions.
